Shrink Labeler

April 26, 2012

PDC International Corporation, a world leader in shrink seal and shrink label technology for foods, beverages and pharmaceuticals, has introduced a robust, multi-use shrink labeler that processes up to 400 containers per minute. The PDC R-400 shrink labeler handles an exceptionally broad range of packages: round, oval and square (including tapered) tubs, also cups and bowls, and a wide range of rigid packages. Systems accommodate packages with capacities between two ounces and one half gallon. It also configures easily into a multipacker. Depending on the container, the R-400 applicator can receive product right side up or upside-down. Graphics can extend fully in both directions: under the bottom of the cup, and over the structural flanges of the container, or up to the chime, for maximum visual appeal. This gives packagers flexibility for communicating product information, important marketing messages and high quality graphic images.
